Last days in my hometown

park in my my hometown

Hi there 🙂 How has everyone been? Enjoying a spare minute with a cup of coffee I thought I’d give you a quick, more personal update before going back to my normal blogging routine.

As you know I’m about to move to my beloved city so at the moment it really is all about preparations (stress!!! loads of it!) and ad hoc trips to the town centre (ever heard of retail therapy???). Exactly a week ago I said goodbye to my best friends in Warsaw (yes, I will miss you a lot!) and then, after 2 days of non-stop packing (how is it possible to cram sooo much stuff on such little space?!) I moved out of the tiny flat to stay 30 miles away with my parents. I have to admit, I was worried about that a lot but turns out everything’s perfectly alright. It almost feels like being 16 again- I’m forced to eat proper breakfast and my favourite teddy is still in the room which used to be mine (a wave of nostalgia here) so all good I guess 😉


The preparation part itself is going slowly-I only managed to book a hotel for the first couple of days in London before I find more permanent accommodation and it’s already time to start packing again. Just two more days and I’m gone, it feels totally surreal- the last walk in the park (it’s pretty lovely, look at the pictures!), last cup of pumpkin spice latte in my favourite little cafe and then, the whole new chapter begins.

When I think of it, I actually feel as if somebody took the weight of the world from my shoulders. I feel calm and happy for once- will get back to you soon!


In the meantime I just want to wish you all a great week before saying hi from the Big Smoke- see you there!

    Moving to London! This sounds nice! Moving can be stressful and fun all at once. Enjoy your new adventures.

    The park looks so beautiful at this time of the year, and I can imagine how surreal it must have been to be back in your roots 🙂

    Congrats on the move! I know it is scary but it is an accomplishment and a new start! That can be exciting! I spent the summer at home (rehabbing from illness and having my tonsils removed) and it was the best thing ever. I had similar feelings as you. I was relaxed and calm and stress-free – plus well-fed. It was amazing. It was also really hard to leave. Best of luck in your future!

    • Thanks so much for your time and effort to write this beautiful comment <3 I am super excited for the move, just wish I was more organised, that would let me avoid the stress of leaving everything to the very last moment, like now, instead of packing I'm reading blogs and social media 😉 And yep, it feels a bit sad to leave family and friends but I'm looking forward to what's gonna come 🙂 Thank you for all your kind words!
